Tips When Beginning a Bathroom Renovation
- Finding a reliable and reputable general contractor – Whether you hire our company or someone else, we hope that you’ll put significant effort into hiring a reputable and experienced bathroom remodeling company. Too often homeowners forgo hiring a licensed general contractor and end up with more problems than they started with. The best advice we can give is to get building permits, that way you have a third party inspector that will ensure the work is being completed to code.
- Look online for ideas – The internet is full of pictures and ideas for bathroom renovations. Scour Pinterest, Houzz and other online sites to find ideas for your next remodel. Remember, these lavish bathrooms you see online cost real money and some of the fixtures and finishes that you see may not be in your budget. Any design idea you like, bring it to your contractor’s attention at the beginning of the project, otherwise you could be stuck with significant change orders and charges to achieve the end result you’re hoping for.
- Be realistic about your budget – Before you begin any type of home renovation it’s important to be realistic about what you can afford and what the best use of your funds may be. A quality general contractor will not only ask about your plans for your new bathroom, but also your larger plans about what you plan to do with your home in the future. It’s important to know if this is your “forever home” or if you plan to move in the next few years. Your answer to this question will help a contractor gauge what to recommend related to your bathroom remodel.
